On October 8, 2016, we held our annual “Reach for the Stars” Grand Gala Auction at the Tulalip Resort Casino. This event raised over $470,000 to provide programs for our kids geared toward academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good citizenship.
For 70 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County has been a prominent feature in local communities. We have grown to over 20,000 kids in 21 Clubs and 15 school sites, providing kids with a safe and positive place to go before and after school. We strive to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Support for the Grand Gala Auction Helps Provide:
- Opportunities to build new skills raising each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.
- Ongoing relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive
environment, reinforcing a sense of belonging, accountability, civility and civic responsibility.
- Generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult.
- A safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone.
- A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.
This summer, immediately following the Summer Olympics in Rio, as many as 150 children are expected to participate in athletic competitions such as the long jump, the 50-yard dash, and basketball shootouts. The day-long event is hosted by the Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County – Everett Unit and sponsored by UnitedHealthcare Community Plan.
Earlier this year, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Washington joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Washington (BGCWA) as a Healthy Lifestyle Partner. Together, these organizations are engaging local youth across the state in nutrition education and the promotion of physical activity to fight the growing rate of childhood obesity. This Olympic Games competition and celebration is an opportunity for the children to recognize how far they have come in developing those important life skills. It’s one of a series of Healthy Lifestyle events UnitedHealthcare is sponsoring with Boys & Girls Clubs across Washington State this year.
